@misterbones – Excellent performance! I enjoyed the slightly higher tempo and you nailed those octave slides in the chorus. I also liked your punchy chord strums. They created a percussive effect that sounded really cool. Keep up the great work 🙂July 13, 2023 at 9:53 pm #58159uku_onParticipant

So this is a pretty rough take. I started on this early as my schedule will be changing soon and I’m not sure if I’ll have time to come back and polish this up. It was a fun song though.July 14, 2023 at 2:42 pm #58161rafaelaParticipant

I am really loving this month’s selection of songs, they are all perfect summer tunes! I am not sure, though, how much time I will have, which is why I went for “Drunken Sailor”. Back in school we used to sing that song in music class, so it brought back some fun memories! 😄 Theme 3 is really tough, especially the muted two strings in bar 10, so I had to slow down for that variation to get a decent recording of it 😅
Thanks for listening, and have a great summer! 🌞

That sounds good, Rafaela!
I can really hear the muted strings near the end of the song – not easy to do
Well done!July 15, 2023 at 4:17 pm #58172AndrewKeymaster
@uku_on – Excellent take Caleb! I agree, it needs just a little more polishing/practice time to smooth out. But it doesn’t sound like it would take too much work to get there. Keep up the great work!
@rafaela – Wow, Rafaela! Phenomenal playing! @annemarie is right, you aced the muted hits. I remember Matt spending a few weeks practicing the last theme to get those clean. It’s not easy! You did so well, bravo 👏July 16, 2023 at 2:17 pm #58174rafaelaParticipantJuly 16, 2023 at 5:25 pm #58177

Here’s my July submission of Misirlou. It’s been a fun challenge to work on that tremolo technique. And I love the sound of that gypsy scale. This is still pretty rough, but I’m too busy the rest of the month and thus am submitting now. And as you can tell, my dog is totally bored with the million takes. One of these days I want to try splicing together the rhythm and lead sections, but I wasn’t quite up for that learning curve.
Thanks again to all. I look forward to everyone’s submissions.July 20, 2023 at 4:46 am #58187
Thank you Andrew! He always looks forward to your encouragement..July 20, 2023 at 12:22 pm #58188brettboyParticipant

Hi Ukulele Friends!
I hope you’re having a nice Summer (or Winter) thus far 🙂
I had a blast learning Matt’s Drunken Sailor arrangement this month.
I decided to tune gBEA to get a bolder harmonic tone at the 12th fret.July 20, 2023 at 12:25 pm #58189July 20, 2023 at 6:59 pm #58190ukandreaParticipant

Here’s my take on Margaritaville. I chose this one since it’s a fun summer song, and I wanted to challenge myself to memorize an intermediate arrangement in the few weeks I won’t be travelling this month. I was able to learn the piece, but I need to keep at it so that I can pick up more speed and smooth over the rough parts. Thanks for the fun arrangement!
